Following my cold not going away, and a friend's recommendation, I'm taking a herbal supplement called Echinacea. This is a weird experience - one side of me shouting 'Hurray! It is making my cold go away! It is miraculous', dancing round and hugging people, whilst the other side shakes its head at the first's naiveté and observes my cold resolutely hanging around with any decrease being inevitable or down to a placebo effect.

(I occasionally also wonder whether a part of what effect is caused is down to the (admittedly minor) amount of alcohol in the bottle, and whether taking a shot of brandy wouldn't be a cheaper way to the same effect.)
